It’s Imperative We Get Something Out Of The Game

On Sunday, Manchester United travel to a ground where the home fans haven’t seen a league defeat in an incredible 84 matches. Whilst United like breaking other teams records, namely Arsenal‘s 49 game unbeaten run in 2004, and Chelsea‘s 40 game unbeaten run in 2005, the odds of geting a result at a place where [...]

Battle For Appearances: Wes vs Gary

If Wes Brown plays today, he will be making his 200th league appearance for us (308 overall), meaning he is just a few games short of matching Brian Kidd, Harry Gregg and Norman Whiteside’s totals. However, Gary Neville should be in contention for starting, which would be his 350th start for the club, and his [...]

Our Condolences…We’ve Got Wesley Brown

Wes Brown put pen to paper on a new contract at United following a period of months where it looked as though he was going to leave the club. He was backed 100% on RoM in regards to his contract bother, after the club really were selling him short in terms of what he was [...]

Rio: Wes Is Keeping Nev Out Of The Team

Wes Brown is the defender with the most appearances this season, which is somewhat ironic, considering he has been second choice for much of his United career. Whilst starting consistently during the 05-06 season, in the centre alongside Rio Ferdinand, Wes has struggled to keep a first team place down in his long career with [...]

Longsight Lad Signs

Wes Brown has finally put pen to paper on a deal that sees him at the club until 2012, following months of speculation regarding his future. Talks broke down after Brown felt he wasn’t being offered a salary that was in line with his contribution to the club, particularly in comparison to the wages of [...]

After Wes Rejection, Will Rio Still Receive Special Treatment?

Whilst Wes Brown is struggling to find an agreement over his contract renewal, Rio Ferdinand is on the brink of starting talks with the club over his new contract. I find it remarkable that the club are unwilling to budge on their initial offer to Brown, which would leave him earning less than team mate [...]

United Contracts: Becks Truth and Taking the P**s out of Brown

David Beckham is a player I have mixed feelings on. As a lifelong Manchester United man and incredibly talented player, he brought so much to the club. He was with United in the most successful year in the club’s history, playing a vital role in our Treble winning season. He played with passion, commitment and [...]

Derby Day and Dad – Why Wes Has To Stay

The first loud cheer of derby day last weekend came when Wes Brown made a thumping challenge on Petrov in front of the Stretford End. In contrast to Manchester City, who played on derby day with just four Englishmen in their sixteen man squad, none of whom were Mancs, United boasted local lads Scholes, Brown, [...]

Is This The Face Of Someone Who Wants To Leave United?

It seems to be a done deal that Wesley Brown will leave United on a free transfer at the end of the season, after rejecting our final contract offer. There has been a divide in the United camp over whether Brown has been foolish or sensible in turning down our offer. Is it fair for [...]

Brown To Leave Us For Spurs?

Wes Brown has been a great servant to United over the years, slotting in at centre and full back depending on where he was needed. The season before last, before Vidic arrived, he formed a great partnership with Ferdinand in the centre, his favoured position, whilst this season has been employed at right back, filling [...]

Record Profits Pave Way For Wes Exit

“Throughout my career I’ve always been a squad player,” said Brown in July. “The manager knows he can pick me and I can do a good job, so I’m very happy here. Leaving United is a conversation I would dread to have with the gaffer. I love playing for United. It’s my home town, so [...]

The Best Natural Defender In England

Wes Brown’s perfectly delivered cross in the Champions League midweek was met by Ronaldo’s head, and ended up in the back of the net. The Longsight lad has scrubbed up well for us, and whilst the seemingly never ending wait for Neville to return still goes on, it is reassuring to have a player of [...]

Jol: Wes Brown Is A Wizard

We got our first win of the season yesterday, but today’s talk revolves around the penalty decissions referee Howard Webb got right. On first viewing, Vidic’s challenge on Berbatov, as well as his blocked shot by Wesley, you’d be forgiven for thinking Spurs should have been awarded a penalty or two. However, video replay shows [...]
